Hotel Etc in Strasbourg – Great location and good value!

I know that you like to find good deals for accommodation when you come to Alsace… So I have found one just for you in Strasbourg! It’s the Hotel Etc in Strasbourg, a 2-star hotel located right in the city centre, on the Grande Île. It’s a very simple hotel, but I’m writing about it, because its location is amazing, its decoration is way nicer than usual chain hotels and because of its very good value. Prices can be very high in the city centre of Strasbourg, but it’s always nice to find an ideal location, without paying too much… so here...

Maison de Thé Les Jardins de Gaïa

Les Jardins de Gaïa is an Alsatian company specialised in organic and fairtrade teas. I have already mentioned it, when I recounted a tea ceremony I took part in there. I then went back several times enjoy their tea house, the Maison de Thé Les Jardins de Gaïa. Their tea room is very pleasant and peaceful. The inside lounge room was a bit disappointing, as it lacks a bit of charm to my taste. On sunny days, it won’t really matter, as you’ll discover the long shady terrace surrounded by zen gardens. You will find on the menu, a huge selection of...

SensoRied, a free barefoot path in the Ried

After having tried Lac Blanc’s barefoot trail, as well as that of Wesserling Park, I went this time to SensoRied, a barefoot path located in Muttersholtz, in the Alsatian Ried (the plain). One of the main advantage of SensoRied is that it’s free, making it the perfect activity to visit Alsace on a small budget and as a family. I’m not a big fan of barefoot paths (my feet quickly hurt!) and I was agreeably surprised by this trail, that I found to be very pleasant, even for my sensitive feet! You will walk on this path at your own pace for about 1.5km, going from one...

Gîtes Les Remparts de Riquewihr – Charming apartments

The Gîtes Les Remparts de Riquewihr consist of 14 gîtes, divided into three different buildings: the “Gîtes du rempart de l’an 1291”, the “Gîtes du rempart de l’an 1500” and the “Gîtes du Vigneron”. I have only tested the first one and I will only be talking about this one. Located in the heart of the town center of Riquewihr, the Gîtes are located in an old building dating back from 1580, which was entirely renovated to host charming apartments of varying sizes. The owners, Jean-Paul and Martine, restored them over the course of two years, as it was only an old ruin...
